My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Although, I did not personally know Bob I felt he was a friend and have enjoyed getting to know him through the podcast. I can only imagine the loss that you all must feel.

I will certainly miss Bawb and his unique sense of humor and personality.

I'm a faithful listener and I was so sad to hear of the passing of Bob. My prayers are with the podcast team and Bob family. His voice and Walt wisdom will be greatly missed.

I just found the pod casts last week and downloaded all the round table pc's.

i started listening to them and heard Bob's review of Fort Wilderness. I same online to see if I could find some of the things he was talking about and found our he passed away.

It's a very sad thing when a "friend" passes away. even if you've never met that "friend" they become part of your live.

It was always funny when you guys made fun of some of the way he said things because of his accent. and how he laughed at it too.

Rest in peace Bob.

Wow...I've been away for some time dealing with business, traveling, and a broken computer. I noticed that the podcast was missing for a while, but then my personal computer broke down and I've not had access to updates since. I didn't even realize that I had an unheard podcast on my ipod until last night. Naturally, I pressed play immediately. I only listened for a minute or two because I couldn't stand to listen once the music for the show began. This was very sad news indeed. I wish I had heard of this sooner, but as that is not the case...I will now wish Bob an eternity of magical days where his dreams will always come true and thank him for putting many a smile on my face since I began listening...

Unhappy I just started listening to this podcast again,

and was shocked and saddened to see "Bob Memorial Show" in the list of shows on my iTouch.

I started catching up, and the third show today which I have the Best of Bob show in my ears right now.

I actually cried a little when the new girl from Louisiana (sorry forgot your name) said on the show before, that Bob was in Heaven checking it out for everyone, so that he could tell them the best spots when they got up there.

I have only listened to this show for a year, (but was active on Rad-p years before; may have even actually met Bob at the get-together up in the World in Dec 2000), and listened for Bob and his Boston accent every show.


will say a prayer for him when we drive up to the World on Friday

I started listening to the podcast in Junish of 2008 so I missed the Bob episodes the first time. The Bob Memorial on the one year anniversary made me go back and listen to every old episode. Well I finally caught up and listened to every Bob episode.

I truely now feel like I knew him and miss him.

I hope Diana knows how many people Bob touched.

Ok...you're all making me tear up again. I started listening just after his passing and went back and listened to all the shows up until his death. I too felt like I had just met someone and in a short time lost him.

We all do miss him...I still go back and listen to shows with him to enjoy his humor!!

Like a few of you at the end of this, I started in July ish, and had exactly the same thing when it came up to Bob's passing.

He will be missed by so so many

I just listened to the 1st Bob memorial show yesterday for the 3rd or 4th time. Even though the subject matter of that show is very sad, I still enjoy listening to it to hear all of the hilarious Bob stories. He was one heck of a human being, and a true individual.

I still miss him greatly, but I am over that initial shock. Instead, I have been trying to find ways of preserving his memory, such as listening (and still laughing like a loon!) to previous "Bob" shows and watching his park tours on Youtube.

What did he die from?
I was trying to read through all 51 pages, but finally skipped to the end to ask.
Pete said on the first page Bob thought he had food poisoning. What was the cause of death?
